Really works!

I am always not confident to buy face care products because of my acne prone skin. But since this item is a gel, which is somewhat safe for acne prone and oily skin, I've decided to try it. I bought the mini gel as a trial. Honestly, I love VMV's packaging. Haha. It looks professional care in a bottle :D anyways, the product really helps in drying pimples. Not the overnight kind of remedy but it does it's job pretty well. For small pimples, you can count a couple of days for them to dry. What really amazed me was the effect for those big painful pimples. I tend to have that kind of pimple once or twice a month, and I am very pleased that I didn't experience that painful feeling when the pimple is growing. Usually that big pimple lasts for more than two weeks, but since using this product, it only took more than a week to dry. It didn't leave a super dark spot as well :) Also, it kind of has a mattifying effect that I really like. However, it can be a bit stingy especially if a pimple popped and you use the product.

Bought this out of curiosity only but now I'm glad I did because it's WORTH IT!

It dries out my small pimples overnight while the really inflamed ones can take a few days [but this may also be because I can't stop touching them out of being too conscious :(] Sometimes I apply it on my nose before makeup so I think it has something to do with why I have lesser blackheads now. The only time I feel the sting is when there's a wound/opening on my skin/pimple. I have the same bottle for about 6 months and I still have more than half of the container to this day.

my go-to pimple remedy

This is my go-to product when I feel that I'm about to get pimples. Just a couple of days of putting the product on the skin and the redness and bump is gone. It doesn't work as fast once the pimple is almost developed. It stings a bit but I guess that's how you know it works.

Yes! I love it!

This is the product that made me 100% satisfied. Since I have an oily skin I tend to breakout once in awhile and sometimes it gets worst. This helped me control the breakout and I also noticed that it dries my pimple faster than the usual and most of all it calms my oily face! I usually use this before I put on my makeup to get a matte finish and it help my makeup stay much longer.

Stings a bit but very effective

It stings a little but I feel that it dries the active pimples out, especially on my cheeks. The smell is a little strong though. I do have oily skin but now that's being managed by using this product. Plus one for VMV. I have no idea why I started to break out but when I did and tried this product, I've been helped greatly

Tiny but mighty!

I bought this on a whim because my skin has been breaking out a lot lately due to poor diet, lack of sleep and stress. Within a couple of days, the tiny bumps scattered across my forehead and chin have mostly dried up, and all pimples threatening to pop to the surface have calmed down. I'm also using this to treat insect bites and it works well, too. There's a slight sting upon application but nothing that's too uncomfortable. I haven't tried this as a primer yet but I have noticed that my face is less oily when I use this. Tip: Use a qtip/cottonbud to get the product out of the bottle, for hygiene's sake and also to get every last drop of the product out.

Excellent for sweat acne

I've always had small bumps on my forehead and after using this, for a month now, I saw how it minimized those bumps, only a few left. That being said, this product is intended as a prevention and not a remedy. If you want a product that will dry up your zits, this may help but it isn't really intended for that, I recommend using VMV's Red Better Spot Corrector. Now what this product will help you with is the prevention of acne, especially in this hot weather. I use this only when I'm going to put on make-up. Sweat + make-up isn't a good combination and this help prevents pimples you might get from that.

Stings yet it cools

I immediately got this product since I'm experiencing rashes or acne on my neck area, and other products are not doing the job. There's a little stinging feeling everytime I used this, but it felt cool on the skin afterwards. I'm happy that I didn't experience any breakouts, and my rashes subsided. The product is really light on the skin, and it can be layered under make-up.

I got this free from a friend who writes reviews of beauty products online. She gave it to me coz I've been having a lot of pimples last month maybe because of too much stress. This monolaurin gel works in drying up my pimples but it didn't happen overnight. My pimples are dried up now but it took more than 3-4 days to see noticeable results. I also tried using it in the morning and it helps a little in controlling oil but if you're really oily, you need a separate primer before you put on makeup.

please change the packaging

i prefer the bigger packaging rather than this mini version. it is so hard to get the gel when it's halfway empty already. it is very effective in mattifying my face, use this actually also as a base before applying foundation. i just wish you'd change the packaging, so that i can bring a travel size during my travels.

Mini Size is Great for Travelling and Sampling

I use this to treat mild acne and big outbreak acne. For me, it starts to dry the pimple out, but after a few days. I love the smaller bottle more as I can carry it when travelling and because I rarely get zits. The lid needs to at least wiped cleanly before putting the bottle away, as the gel can cake over the rim of the bottle's neck, creating a bit of a slimy transparent gunk. This product may not work for everyone, however, so I suggest buying this size to sample it before really deciding in invest in the larger bottle.

Not so helpful

Heard promising things about this product. My cousin said this is her go-to when she has really bad breakouts. I started using this last May but I did not see a difference between when I was using it and when I wasn't in terms of getting rid of my zits. It has a very strong alcohol smell which makes it a bit hard to breathe while using the product.

Aw~ I think I'm allergic to one of the ingredients. I broke out terribly just a day after applying this. The first VMV product which caused this. Oh skin is hypersensitive, I'm sure this rarely happens. I gave mine to my bestfriend, I hope it works well for her.
